After Prince Charles was given a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, his mother, Queen Elizabeth is being closely monitored as she came in contact with her son just before. While it was revealed the Queen’s health is of top concern, it was never confirmed if she has tested positive as well.
According to a Royal source, Queen Elizabeth has not exhibited any symptoms yet. Early Thursday morning it was reported through a statement that Charles is now in isolation.
Queen Elizabeth Being Monitored Closely After Meeting With Prince Charles Who Tested Positive for COVID-19
“This morning The Prince of Wales has tested positive for COVID-19 and is now self-isolating. HRH is deeply disappointed not to be able to attend today’s events in Winchester and will look to reschedule his visit as soon as possible.”
This is not the first time Charles contracted COVID-19. According to reports, Charles also texted positive in March 2020 when the pandemic first began.
Charles and his wife Camilla are both fully vaccinated and boosted. It is believed the Queen is also fully vaccinated, although, it was only ever confirmed that Elizabeth received her first dose.
Just hours before Charles tested positive, he and Camilla attended a British Asian Trust event at the British Museum, People reports. Although, it cannot be confirmed where Charles may have contracted the virus.
As Mamas Uncut previously reported, the royal family, including the Queen had a rather busy weekend with Elizabeth celebrating her 70th anniversary as the Queen of England. On Sunday, the Queen released a statement in honor of the historic milestone that she wished for Camilla to be acknowledged as the Queen Consort.
“When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service,” the Queen wrote.
As reports revealed, after Charles and Camilla wed, Queen Elizabeth at the time said she wished for Camilla to be known as the Princess Consort when Charles assumed the throne as King. This will now change.
Queen Elizabeth is currently 95 years old, while her son is 73 and Camilla is 74. It is unclear if Camilla also tested positive for COVID.
